Chu is an adorable little panda bear and “When Chu sneezed, bad things happened.” We follow Chu along in his day as he visits the library which is very dusty, then he goes to have lunch at a diner, which has a lot of pepper, and finally he goes to the circus. He made it through most of the day without sneezing until he was at the circus, and when he finally did sneeze, well, very bad things happened.

The story is cute and the illustrations even cuter. Some pages are very simplistic with an image of Chu on a white background. Other images are full of color and detail. Many illustrations span both pages and do a great job of setting scenes. Very simple, yet completely adorable!
